Duke Ernst August of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach had a Baroque summer residence including an orangery, pleasure garden and labyrinth built here between 1724 and 1748. During the winter months Schloss Belvedere's main buildings are not open to the public. However, the extensive gardens (43 acres of parkland) and some of the subsidiary buildings are.
This could be a nice museum, but at present works are done. The orangerie (and garden) is nice, but the Chateau itself is pretty outdated. It is nice to see, but not really a must see in Weimar.
We have not been inside, as we visited the Schloss Schönbrunn, Hofburg and Kunsthistorisches Museum already, so we have just walked around in the front- and back garden of the palace, which we enjoyed.

Very well restored castle just outside Weimar. You can walk around with the audio guide and enjoy the exhibit - a lot of it is porcelain, glass, paintings etc. There are a bit of furniture here and there, but in general the rooms are not furnished, however, the rooms are beautiful in themselves. There is a beautiful park by the... 更多
